Coal dispatch up

Besides, the upturn in off-take has resulted in a comfortable coal stock position. The total coal stock as on June 30, 2023 has stood at 107.15 mt (provisional) compared to 77.86 mt a year-ago. This growth indicates the continued efforts to meet rising demand for coal.

The sustained efforts of the Ministry towards enhancing coal production and ensuring seamless dispatch underscores India’s persistence in meeting its energy demands and fostering continuous economic growth, it said.

These positive developments position the nation favourably and contribute to driving the positive trajectory of the country’s energy sector, reinforcing the commitment towards providing uninterrupted power supply and paving the way for Aatmanirbhar Bharat, the Ministry added.
